Persistant Shapechange Attack [General] Prerequisites: Shapechanger subtype, Natural Weapon before changing shape.Benefit: If before using an Alternate Form or Change Shape ability you have a Natural Weapon, you keep the natural attack of the original form. If the new form gives natural attacks that share the same appendage as your original Natural Weapon, You gain the new forms natural attacks.
Example 1: David the Doppelganger has a 1d6 slam attack. When he uses his Change Shape ability, he keeps his slam attack.
Example 2: Henry the Human has the Feral template, giving him a 1d8 claw attacks. He becomes a Werewolf, and also takes this feat. When entering his Animal form or Hybrid Form, instead of gaining the 1d4 claw attacks from Werewolf, he keeps his 1d8 claws from Feral. Because he does not have a bite attack from his natural form, the Animal & Hybrid Forms gain the bite attack.
Normal: Most shapechangers lose their Natural Weapons when taking a different form.
